Maureen Stapleton dies at age 80


She was a staple of screen and stage, and won an Oscar for her portrayal of Emma Goldman in “Reds.”

First out of the chute for the 2007 Oscar “In Memoriam” montage.

Nope. Got 3 others, at least, that happened before 2006 Oscars but didn’t make it into the montage:

Don Knotts
Dennis Weaver
Darren McGavin

Probably also Jack Wild & Gordon Parks.

It’s been a bad year for actors so far. :frowning:
